Let's Plan Your Travel to Kenya

Because of its diversity, access and experiences offered, Kenya has always been a favourite for safari enthusiasts. With vast savannahs and dramatic mountains, it is obvious why the animators of Disney’s Lion King traveled to Kenya’s Great Rift Valley and Masai Mara National Park to get inspiration for the film’s landscape.

Located in the south, the most established park in Kenya is the Masai Mara. Game viewing here is like no other; Sightings of lion prides, elephant herds, leopard cubs and the wildebeest migration (between August and November) are just examples of what to expect to see on a morning game drive.

A Kenya safari is particularly attractive because of the activities it offers. The Laikipa Plateau in central Kenya offers camel and horse riding, quad biking and tubing on the Ewaso Nyiro River. In the Lewa Conservancy, travelers can visit rhino sanctuaries, dog-tracking units, and other wildlife conservation programmes.

The capital Nairobi, is a hustling city which is usually the starting point, or end destination of a Kenya safari holiday. Although the city is predominantly a business hub, there are interesting visits to be made; For example, adopt a baby elephant at the David Sheldrick Wildlife Trust, or share a breakfast with giraffes at the famous Giraffe Hotel.

The Kenyan coast is also worth combining with your safari. An hour south of Mombasa lies Diani– arguably the country’s most beautiful beach. The coastline is formed of sparkling white sands, hugged by lush forests. For those looking for a more active stay, snorkeling, diving, and paddle boarding can be arranged. On the other hand, for those looking to sit back and enjoy the paradise coastline, do so with fresh seafood, delicious cocktails and wonderful service.

Your Private Kenya Safari

The wildlife in Kenya is second-to-none. The destination that is always at the forefront of the safari in Kenya is the Masai Mara National Reserve located in the south, and rightly so. The Masai Mara is one of the densest wildlife destinations in all of Africa, home to hundreds of lion prides, cheetahs, leopards, elephants, giraffe, hippo and crocodile, among many others. In particular, the elephant population has been increasing every year, and statistics show that the population has doubled from 16,000 in 1990, to now over 35,000 today.

On top of the incredible resident wildlife in the Masai Mara, during the months of July to October, you can see the wildebeest migration herds in Masai Mara. The herds cross the Mara River from the Serengeti in Tanzania into the Masai Mara in Kenya around July/August to spend a couple of months enjoying the fresh pasture in Kenya. They then head back into Tanzania, crossing the river again around October. The migration movements vary each year depending on the rain patterns but, if you want to see the herds in the Mara, the August to September period is the most reliable. The staff at Ol Pejeta Bush Camp are waiting to welcome you!
